You wont miss this Monument ( Column) if you are within the Castle square. This monument Is 72 ft tall and the statue is made from Bronze Granite. This monumnet was completed in 1644 and is dedicated to King Sigismund III Vasa who had moved the Capital city of Poland from Krakow to Warsaw back in 1596

An impressive column towering over the castle square. Adds a central point to the square and can get a good photo from the street.

King Sigismund is not the favourite king for the people from Cracow, because at the end of the 16th c he decided to move the capital of Poland from Cracow to Warsaw :) The column is one of the landmarks of Warsaw. A rallying point for political manifestations and cultural events.

Tall column passed on the way back from the Little Insurgent Statue. Nice photo opportunity, not too busy on a cold day.

King Sigismund's Column is located in the middle of the castle square. Great to take photos there. Nice, but not the main attraction in this area.

I read that the older columns were on the grass beside the castle and they were! It was really awesome to see all of the statues that King Sigismund has stood on top of!

Yet another significant monument to add to your Wishlist. Located at the entrance to the Old Town and the northern end of Krakowskie Przedmieście. It has a very interesting history behind it. Look it up its worth the time

nice column in the center of the Castle Square. Castle Square is a vibrant place and great for people watching on a summy day
